Meche Leaning Away from Jays Nothing Official

Hours after being told that Ted Lilly will not sign with Toronto, the Blue Jays front office was getting the feeling that Gil Meche would also stiff the club since they have not heard from the right-hander. Toronto is going to make one final attempt tonight to convince Meche to sign with them.

The Blue Jays offered Meche a four year contract on Tuesday worth approximately $34-36 million, but as InsideTheDome first reported on Tuesday, Meche has his heart set on pitching for the Cubs.

Meche is expected to make his decision by the end of the meetings.

The Blue Jays are not expected to go after another pitcher if they lose out on Meche. They will give the final rotation spot to Josh Towers, and might pursue a trade for a fourth starter. Recommended Stories
